By right samsung should use Note 6 name...this thing 'kaboom' happen...then came Note 7 to the rescue ..seems right.. but our samboy greedy to be at the same '7' seat ..LOL..still pushing for replacement in order to maintain ego...at the end still loose ego and another billion to loose.... don't blame others for your EGO ...
What happens with these customers?
Do they get a full refund? Or an exchange for an S7 Edge (with some additional goodies to compensate for the troubles)?
I would like to know. Any (ex-)Note 7 users wishing to spill the beans on how this "return" gets handled?
Thanks in advance.
symbian, 11 Oct 2016i miss symbian.it was awesome. You mean:
..the last itteration of Symbian was awesome.
Indeed Symbian Belle was fantastic.
But that was partly due to good hardware (C7/701/808PV) with enough system memory onboard. I loved my 808PV although the series was also plagued with HW-faults (like the famous 3G-bug). And while mine has no faults at all and still looks great and works fine, people seem to forget the bad times on Nokia road. A common flaw in many Symbian (S60) devices was that they had too less RAM. In that case Nokia was as bad in cutting corners as Samsung though at least their phones didn't go boom! :-(
viveksubhash, 11 Oct 2016i dont think i can trust any phone again..bendy screens, bendy phnes, antennagate, explosions,... moreSome of us still use that Nokia and haven't followed the mass-consumer propaganda from the "other players".
Common sense rules!

DELIBERATE. WITH MALICE AFORETHOUGHT INTENTIONAL SABOTAGE
You have a world wide recall and items deemed safe still explode SABOTAGE,

I mean it's great phone don't take me wrong, but MiUI is a relatively heavy skin so upping the processor and the gpu by a few mhz (what *really* SD821 is when compared to SD820) won't make a difference in the world. Vanilla or Vanilla based phones would always be smother, run faster.
Besides RAM plays a giant role too. 4GB may seem a lot in theory for a phone, but MiUIs phone can only store handful apps in memory (again a heavy framework/skin/etc), imagine what those would suffer at the hands of an almost stock OnePlus 3 at 6GB... it's no fun how smoother OP3 actually (would) feel.
Android Authority has been telling people not to return their 1st phone and let's see if they will tell people not to return their 2nd phone. Android Authority is simply a Samsung marketing front.

i dont think i can trust any phone again..bendy screens, bendy phnes, antennagate, explosions, self cracking screens...aaah...waiting for nokia...oh man i think all those people who complained about symbian are regretting it now
what a sad day for Samsung, but what i don't like is the part in the post "And it all stemmed from SamsungÂ’s desire to get the Note out before the iPhone 7" that's just an assumption, they had the 1 year release on schedule and it wasn't about iPhone, it was about their own deadline... still the issue remains and i still hope when they investigate they dismiss all the cases and tell the people it's safe to use the Note :)
It's not about explosion.. Its about US/Apple conspiracy... They can do anything to protect his product. Same as MAS flight missing.
At this point they should discontinue the Note 7 and focus more on the S8. But then...they must create a new, stable battery.
